Municipal market in Papeete,Tahiti

Happened to be there on Easter Sunday morning. The place was already bustling with activities. It's a two storey building with downstairs being the wet market with fish stalls, meat and polutry stalls, vegetable stalls and food stalls at different corners. Upstairs was supposed to be dry goods area selling local arts and crafts. Unfortunately, it was closed on Sundays. This market reminds me very much of the central market in my hometown.
